Spring Solstice Stanzas


It is bloomingly clear 
that spring is here;
for the buttercups and lilies
have begun to appear


And we have a new rule,
be it ever so cruel.
We must hike before dinner,
some time after school




This man is a fan
of making big plans.
A summer backpacking trip
on Western Washington lands

The packs are all filled
with as much weight as we dare
In hopes that by summer
we will all be prepared 




Even though it's not raining,
Savanna's complaining.
Nothing is fun,
when we are physically straining



The drill is to trek up the hill 
at least twice.
We want to get stronger, 
therefore once won't suffice. 

If friends come a calling
they are in for a treat.
The hike can't be cancelled,
and we welcome new feet.


 

Our cat follows closely
just like a pet dog
It is really quite funny
when she jump on the logs

And now I must close
cause my prose has come loose
I think Ansel and I 
have read too much D. Suess

Obviously Corey got his dream reservation. Good luck to all of you!

Excellent.

And inspiring: this year my Wife and I are going to do a lot more hiking and camping than last year. Or the year before that. Or the year before that.

I love it. The family that strains together stays together.

Fabulous. I think Savanna should definitely take skirts along for the big trip. They require very little packing space and are very light.;-)
